Had the Estes Brook route beeji in better shape for roads there would be a service opened to supply 6 section^ this spring, but there is ojjSSfthing youf Uncle Samuel Insists on and that is reasonably good roads for rural mail service. He thinks that if he can guarantee the farmers good mail service they should guarantee his mail carriers good roads, and in this he is right. An application for a free rural route east from Princeton out around Green lake will soon be forwarded to the de partment. This route will go directly east to Green lake and along the north shore to Spectacle lake, thence south one mile on the east side of Spectacle lake, thence southwest to the creek or outlet of Green lake, thence northwest to Green lake, thence south one mile and into Princeton over the main trav eled road. The route may require a few changes in route No. 2 and the two routes will be so arranged as to. give the territory east of Princeton the best kind of service. Postmaster Cordiner has taken con siderable interest in the free rural delivery routes which he thinks area great help both to the farming and business community, and he has given those interested in establishing rural routes all the assistance and informa tion possible.

The route was outlined in the UNION some time ago. It takes a southwesterly course from Princeton over the old State road, ppssirig the Brown school and contin ues on to the Galbraith school-house, at which point it goes south into Or rock and east along the north shore of roller mill at Lake Josephine, thence north a short Hennepin county and will organ distance and east to Elk lake, skirting C0 T!.? tt0 government under the timber and stone act, and the great bulk of it is in the two counties of Itasca and St. Louis.

Along the Minnesota & International railroad in this county but few scat tered homesteads are left for entry. The road pursues a northeasterly di rection, and most of the land has been taken up along its survey clear to the Canadian boundary. A great deal is taken for its timber, but there is also a great many settlers who are building permanent homes and starting new villages. The continuation of the Virginia & will doubtless have a somewhat similar effect in Northern St. Louis county, and there may be the usual rush for townsites.Bemidji Pioneer. Princeton Millers Bay a Mill. Joseph Craig and J. P. Zimmerman of the Princeton Roller Mill Co., and Geo. Dielman, brother-in-law of J. P. Zimmerman, have purchased a Long Lake, in ganize ne bee ly and thence north a mile and a half, at which point it takes ths main road int6 Princeton. The original inten tion was to take in the Blue Hill post offiee but it made the route too long. As It is now mapped out it is twenty five miles long and makes quite a model route. The roads are for the most part in very good condition. Carrier Giltner will start out with a full equip ment of blanks for the purpose of tak ing money orders and for handling registry business. He will also carry a supply of stamps Farmers along the new route have been well canvassed by the daily newspaper solicitors and who have equipped them with mail bo^es and a paper, and with his let ter!, papers and the endless chain of circulars, etc the farmer along route No! 3 will have all the reading he wants from day to day. a company to be known as the Z. Milling Co.,nwhich will oper atw the mill The mill is practically ago,. but has not bee operated much UUD 1liii.. eto and "was "bunt only three years It is a three story mill and fully equipped for doing a good milling business. The deal was consummated this week and yesterday Messrs. Craig and Dielman, and Chas. Carlson who has been with the Princeton roller mill for some time, went down to Long Lake to take charge of the property and place it in shape for operating Mr. Dielman will look after the busi ness management of the mill while Mr. Carlson, who is an experienced miller, will be head miller. While the new company will be entirely independent of the Princeton Roller Mill Co the two mills will be operated under a joint business management and the Long Lake mill will be in one sense an auxiliary to the Princeton mill whose business has been growing at a very rapid rate the last few years, and un der the new arrangement the company will be able to better handle its in creasing trade. Mr. Craig has made the Princeton milt one of the best roller mills in the northwest and its flour and milling products rank up to a very high standard. He will give the LD~4) Lakejtgill much of hie per sonal supervision and place it on a par with the Princeton mill. The Long Lake mill has a capacity of seventy five barrels of flour per day. St. Cloud Normal Improvements. Clarence G. Johnston, architect for the board of control, was in the city to-day to take up the matter of building the addition to the main building of the St. Cloud normal school Senator Brower secured an appropria tion from the legislature for this pur pose of $30,000. The plans were pre pared two years ago and have the, ap proval of the building committee of the normal board. The addition is to the main building, which will be brought out in front some forty or fifty feet, anew roof will be put on the entire main building, and when completed will be a very handsome building, and a great^ im provement as a school building. Mr. Johnston drove to the reforma tory to consult with Superintendent Randall about some repairs to that in stitution, and returned to St. Paul this afternoon.St. Cloud Journal Press, (Jan. 25th.)

A SUIT FOR $30,000. Andrew Larson of Ogilvie Brings a Suit Against Matthias Jost of flankato for $30,000. Larson Claims He Was Imprisoned Without Just Cause and Claims Heavy Damages. Attorneys A. E. ClaTk of Mankato, and Lewis C. Gjertsen of Minneapolis, have been in Princeton the past week taking depositions in an action com menced by Andrew Larson of Ogilvie against Matthias Jost of Mankato for $30,000 damages for false imprison ment. Last May Jost had Larson and another man by the name of Andrew Bodin arrested on the charge of hav ing stolen 100,000 feet of timber off of the plaintiffs land situate in sections 39-26 and 40-26, the land being near Page, where at the time the defend ants had been running a small saw mill. Larson and Bodin were brought before Justice Dickey at the time and they waived examination and were held to the grand jury. Subsequently they were released on bail, and when the grand ]ury met last September the matter was given a full investigation and the defendants were discharged, as no indictment was found against them. Lewis Gjertsen appeared at the time in the interests of Larson and Bodin. Larson claims that his feelings and reputation has been damaged to the extent of $30,000 and has placed the matter in the hands of Gjertsen who has commenced an action. Jost denies each and every allegation and the re sult is that Mr. Clark as attorney for Jost and Mr. Gjertsen as attorney for Larson have been hustling for deposi tions and evidence in the case. They were looking over the records in the justice court and examined Mr. Dickey before whom the examination was conducted. County Attorney Ross was also examined as to Mr. Jost's appear ance before the grand jury and on other matters connected with the case. Mr. Jost is a resident of Mankato where he has resided tor a long time, and has extensive interests. He owns it lot of land'In township59-26.~ O President's Funeral. The citizens of Princeton will be giv en an opportunity for the first time on Saturday evening next (Feb. 1st) at opera house of witnessing the entire funeral of our late president. You will see the funeral from the time it leaves the Millburn house, Buffalo, until it arrives at the cemetery at Canton, thus witnessing the greatest funeral ever known in the world. Don't miss seeing those pictures, as this is the only ma chine on the road that has got the president's funeral. There are two hundred other very interesting pic tures that will also be shown. Tickets on sale at the usual place. This is what the St. Cloud Journal Press says about the entertainment: "Balan's Biascope entertainment at the Davidson Saturday evening gave the very best satisfaction. Many who attended the performance the evening before were present at the second entertainment, which is a good enter tainment. The many pictures were the best ever seen at the Davidson, those of the McKinley funeral being very clear and distinct, conveying an excel lent idea, true in every detail, of the most important funeral ever held in America. The theater would have been crowded had it not been for the storm which prevailed. The attrac tion is a good one and worthy of liberal patronage. K. P. Field Day at Princeton. Mille Lacs Company No. 3, Uniform Rank, K. P., will have a chance to be host to the first battalion of the first regiment of the Uniform Rank at the battalion field day and inspection which is to be held the first week in June at some place in the State. The battalion intends to go outside the cities this year and it is thought that if the business men of Princeton will take hold and help entertain the guests an invitation will he extended the members of the first battalion. With the Princeton company the battalion consists of three Minneapolis compan ies, and they would be accompanied by the St. Paul company that goes to San Francisco next summer to attend the competitive drilL The field day ex-" ercises and inspection would be at tended by over 300people, mostly uni formed K. P's who would come on' special train and remain during the day. The local K. P's would be ex pected to entertain the guests while here, and it would seem that the event is well worth securing for Princeton. It would bring a large crowd to the place and be one of the gala days of therrear. 1 "t -HE 4
